    Hello from a Film Newbie....

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Denis and I'm new to the film world. I've been doing photography for several years (Digital Only) and have just recently started down the film path. Here is a quick summary of how I ended up experimenting with film.

    Last year I came to the conclusion that something was missing from my photography, exactly what I'm still not sure. However, having said that I believe that film holds the key. So last year I pieced together an RB67 Pro SD kit including a Polaroid back. To date I've only run a few rolls of film through the camera (B&W & Color) and a pack of Fuji FP-100B. The results have been good, but not my best work by any means.

    I hope to pick-up some tips from you all in the future and I already have lots of questions, especially about B&W film development.

    Denis

    Welcome from England.

    I have a Pro SD too. I haven't used my Polaroid back yet though. Plenty of tips to be found here.

    Hey Denis, I'm also an MF newbie, glad to have you aboard, this place has been ridiculously helpful for me! Don't be afraid to ask questions if you can't find what you're after.

    Until later...

    Hello from Richmond Va. I have a RB67 also. Using film takes patience!
